The Glowing Void - Development Diary




Early stage gameplay video:

Youtube link | Pop Up



Ok guys, well I started making a game called The Glowing Void at 5pm yesterday, and stopped coding at 6am when I had a reasonable build of the game done, with high scores working using Agon !

I've started up a but of a development diary here for anyone thats interested:
http://theglowingvoid.blogspot.com/

For now though; here is a few teaser screenshots !






As the project progresses I'll upload some videos and people can give suggestions etc!

The game will be priced initially at $0.99/0.59 then it might raise to $1.99/1.19 after a week .

Would love to hear some thoughts from you guys!


Also many thanks to Seishu for testing the game for me in the early hours of this morning and his great suggestions for improvements ! (Seishu -I'm working on them now, will prolly show how it's progressing later on today !)

Ok, well based on suggestions from last night I've started adding a new mode to the game ...

Currently have instructions pages for both game types, and the menu GUI working... Also have one mode working 100% properly... Just need to code the actual gameplay of the new mode...

More updates soon!... But for now i'm gonna grab some bfast :P!

ok, the "filler game" style aspects are almost working; I just need to get it calculating the % of the screen which has been taken up by the fill objects !

There's 2 gameplay modes (or soon will be). Seishu suggested a traditional filler mode, and there is the different take on it that it started with still in as a seperate mode ! Seishu also suggested some unique elements to do with objects sticking together and stuff, which I'll work on in a day or two/ after this next "beta release" .

On the update is ready .

The current known bugs are:
The red "Enemies" sometimes get stick in corners/ tight areas.

Planned addittions:
Fading scored when you lift your finger so you know how many you've lost/gained.
Playing around with properties of the voids to see if theres any cool stuff I can make happen.
Limiting the amount of voids you can make in Filler mode to stop large amounts crashing the device if you tap it 100's of times...

I'll be sending the beta testers a download link within the next hour !
